Another Sunday Service, the last one from London for a while as Adrian Cox is heading out once again to Bulgaria for another working holiday. Lucky for some! Our man fully intends to stream as usual from his Continental base. Today's session, the first of two this week from Toulouse Lautrec, south London, found clarinetist Cox in the company of London-based American bassist Will Sach. On with the show...Chlo-e (Song of the Swamp) and straight into Caravan with Cox and Sach in the groove from the off. 

I'm Beginning to See the Light brought a first vocal of the afternoon courtesy of Cox. South featured Sach's arco bass intro followed by Cox's dazzling work on the licorice stick. A second vocal, Irving Berlin's My Walking Stick, great delivery, Cox must have a thousand tunes in his head! from the great Irving Berlin to the great George Gershwin - I Was Doing Alright. Cox and Sach closed this afternoon's set with Cachoa D'Rivera's Al Fin Te Vi. Russell
